Campagnolo Bora WTO 45 Carbon Clincher Wheelset
Usually dispatched within 24 hours
The Campagnolo Bora WTO 45's are a carbon wheelset, designed and optimised for road racing over undulating terrain. While the 45mm deep rim helps these wheels slice through the air with speed, the structure of the rim itself enhances wind power at certain yaw angles, driving the athlete both further and faster for minimal effort. Despite these aerodynamic gains, the Campagnolo Bora WTO 45's weigh less than 1500 grams per pair - so you don't have to worry about your new wheelset holding you back when riding uphill.
Campagnolo has designed this rim to accept larger tyres, to minimise rolling resistance, as well as maximising grip and rider comfort out on the road. However, thanks to the two-way-fit profile, if further grip, comfort and puncture protection is needed, riders can also run the Campagnolo Bora WTO 45's tubeless too. Although carbon wheels typically don't have the best reputation for wet weather braking, by applying the AC3 (All Conditions Carbon Control) technology to the braking track of this wheelset, Campagnolo has improved dry weather braking by 20% and wet weather braking by 40%.
These advanced carbon rims are paired with a set of equally advanced hubs. While the alloy hub shell is designed for minimal drag, the ceramic USB cup-and-cone bearing system ensures a lasting smooth spin and maximised rider efficiency. These hubs are laced to the rims via 18 steel spokes on the front, and 21 on the rear. Using a cross-sectional spoke pattern allows for a considerable increase in wheel strength and durability, as well as a noticeable reduction in rolling resistance.

My Best Wheels Yet
I bought these wheels to replace a set of Campagnolo Bora One 35s on my Colnago V-2R, and I was surprised at the difference. I thought the Bora Ones were great wheels, but the WTOs are beyond great. It's not just that they go faster; they go faster with the application of noticeably less energy. I am 158 pounds, and I discern no flex, no give, just forward propulsion. They seem able to spin forever. I ride them with tubes, if that makes any difference to you. My only complaint is that they can be difficult to mount tires on. Be prepared to employ all the tricks and techniques, plus Campagnolo's supplied tire levers. But once they are on the bike, they will not let you down. I only have a few hundred miles on them so far. If I run into problems, I will try to find a way to update this review. If you see no updates or followup reviews, assume they are still going strong for me. On a recent ride with a friend, we did an extended descent and my friend asked how they handled the cross wind. "What cross wind?" I said. I think Campagnolo wasn't joking when they called them "wind-tunnel optimized."
Very beautiful wheels,nice rolling.Happy with the purchase,no worry with crosswind.
I been a campy wheel guy for several year, love my ultra 50, but have to say the wto 45 cut through the wind, roll and ride is outstanding. I also have a set of wto 60, but the 45 are my favorites..
